My Sunday Best of Web posts are really eclectic, did you miss it?
This is a great post with awesome finds! My 10 Favorite SPG Low Category Redemptions.
Best experiences in Iceland. Nice.
Running really low on miles/points and travel stuff again so lets get to some eclectic links again…
Inside the World of NBA Barbers. Wow, I had no idea!
There is no way in hell I would ever do this…but it is mesmerizing to watch and listen to! The wonderful sounds of black ice skating.
I am not sure if this guy is completely nuts or just followed his heart and in that case I must say I am impressed. Michigan man shows up in Chicago ER after getting wounded 6,200 miles away in Syria.
Been a while I had a link for sex robots. Until now! In Defense of Sex Robots. I am shaking my head…
Stop bitching about how your pre-departure drink being late or how you did not get that suite upgrade! Or do something useful. Like these people: Tampa family adopts 9 children to keep siblings together.
10 Surprising Photos of Afghanistan’s Wakhan Corridor. Great photos!
Too awesome wedding photography, wow!
This page has many photos of Ice Huts. Only ice huts! BLOG BUZZ

Good post by The Deal Mommy on Some Thoughts on Stewardship. Good thoughts in general but you must understand that this is no longer a hobby, it is a BIG business and as long as success is being based on
metrics conversions you will get “bloggers” killing deals. Most of us veterans know who to avoid but most newbies out there do not. I am doing my best here to the detriment of my own “success” conversions. But not many are willing to name names…So much fuss about a marginal blogger trying to monetize “expertise”…why all the rage suddenly when so many other “experts” just pound the shit out of those newbies to trick them to get more credit cards huh?
So much fuss about the Manufactured Spending Changes at Wal Mart. And now we have another blogger trying to keep us informed along with Pointchaser about this “hobby”. Maybe these two should get together and compare notes because I am sure they are all doing it for the love of it and want to show “friends and family” how to travel for free #sarcasm.
Also a lot of fuss about the new US Bank rewards. A contrary opinion which I tend to agree with. US Bank Real-Time Rewards are good, not great.
One less version of AMEX Platinum cards, the Mercedes Benz one. Guess why these bank representatives were not informing their readers about this one? No sales commission for them of course!
And AMEX is ending the OPEN Savings program. Like anyone really cares!
Post #57 is great. This Ingy guy trying to stay relevant out there…the audacity of the sad troll, terrible! 🙂
Over the weekend there was massive credit card pumping. As usual. This has nothing to do with The Hobby, this is about selling credit cards to the masses. You know that TBB reader but please spread it and lets save the next responsible newbie who trusts some dude on the internet telling him/her how they can fly for free, all they gotta do is apply for seven credit cards at the same day!
